At this point, and for the years following, the C-14 in the sample begins to decay back into N-14, while the C-12 does not decay.
It makes no sense at all if man appeared at the end of billions of years.
Today, scientists attempt to determine the age of dead organisms by measuring the ratio of C-12 to C-14, by comparing it to an assumed but unobserved initial ratio, and determining how long it would take to get from the assumed but unobserved initial ratio at an assumed but unobserved rate of decay.
Here are the key assumptions: There is one fact that makes it highly unreasonable to believe that the proportion of C-14 to C-12 was the same in the past as it has been in recent history: It is not in equilibrium.
So, we have a “clock” which starts ticking the moment something dies.
Obviously, this works only for things which were once living.
Give me the facts about what I'm reading and why these numbers can even be trusted.
